The World Health Report 2008 - Primary Health Care: Now More Than Ever
Why a renewal of primary health care (PHC), and why now, more than ever? The
immediate answer is the palpable demand for it from Member States – not just
from health professionals, but from the political arena as well. Globalization is
putting the social cohesion of many countries under stress, and health systems,
as key constituents of the architecture of contemporary societies, are clearly not
performing as well as they could and as they should. People are increasingly
impatient with the inability of health services to deliver levels of national
coverage that meet stated demands and changing needs, and with their failure to
provide services in ways that correspond to their expectations. Few would
disagree that health systems need to respond better – and faster – to the
challenges of a changing world. PHC can do that.

The world health report 2007 - A safer future: global public health
security in the 21st century
The World Health Report 2007 - A safer future: global public health security in the
21st century marks a turning point in the history of public health, and signals
what could be one of the biggest advances in health security in half a century. It
shows how the world is at increasing risk of disease outbreaks, epidemics,
industrial accidents, natural disasters and other health emergencies which can
rapidly become threats to global public health security. The report explains how
the revised International Health Regulations (2005), which came into force this
year, helps countries to work together to identify risks and act to contain and
control them. The regulations are needed because no single country, regardless of capability or
wealth, can protect itself from outbreaks and other hazards without the cooperation of others. The
report says the prospect of a safer future is within reach - and that this is both a collective
aspiration and a mutual responsibility.

The world health report 2006 - working together for health


The World Health Report 2006 - Working together for health contains an expert
assessment of the current crisis in the global health workforce and ambitious
proposals to tackle it over the next ten years, starting immediately. The report
reveals an estimated shortage of almost 4.3 million doctors, midwives, nurses
and support workers worldwide. The shortage is most severe in the poorest
countries, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, where health workers are most
needed. Focusing on all stages of the health workers' career lifespan from entry
to health training, to job recruitment through to retirement, the report lays out a
ten-year action plan in which countries can build their health workforces, with the
support of global partners.

The World Health Report 2005 – Make Every Mother and Child Count
The World Health Report 2005 – Make Every Mother and Child Count, says that
this year almost 11 million children under five years of age will die from causes
that are largely preventable. Among them are 4 million babies who will not survive
the first month of life. At the same time, more than half a million women will die in
pregnancy, childbirth or soon after. The report says that reducing this toll in line
with the Millennium Development Goals depends largely on every mother and
every child having the right to access to health care from pregnancy through
childbirth, the neonatal period and childhood.
